To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. . . Ecclesiastes 3:1
You have so succinctly captured the plight of the poor little bird. I do hope it was alright. (It appears so from the photo). Best wishes! TJ
The bird did survive. After resting on our hands for a while, it was able to fly. I did worry a little about the one foot which appeared to be injured.
